Former FBI Director Louis Freeh released his report on sexual abuse at Penn State, and it was scathing. Via State College:
Louis Freeh, the former FBI director, left nothing to the imagination in his much-anticipated presentment Thursday morning.
There was an effort made by the four most powerful men at Penn State to conceal a child sexual predator.
Former president Graham Spanier, athletic director Tim Curley, retired vice president of finance and business Gary Schultz, and, yes, beloved patriarch and former football coach Joe Paterno are all to blame for not stopping the raping the children by Jerry Sandusky as far back as 1998, according to the 267-page Freeh Report.
A 56-word email sent by Schultz to Curley, with Spanier CC’d, and dated June 9, 1998, changed Penn State forever. It caps a campus police investigation that yielded no charges against Sandusky at the time.
“They met with Jerry on Monday and concluded that there was no criminal behavior and the matter was closed as an investigation. He was a little emotional and expressed concerned as to how this might have adversely affected the child. I think the matter has been appropriately investigated and I hope it is now behind us.”
Of course, it wasn’t.
About the only good thing that can be said of Penn State is that it hired Freeh to do the investigation. That does very, very little good for the kids who were abused, but at least the truth is coming out.DONATE
